It is precisely analogous (height-wise) to not being able to tell the difference between a child's doll house and the Empire State Building!

It is arguably the single most important determinant-in-fact of their quality of life and the masses are looking straight at the Empire State Building and being told that it is a child's doll house. Yet they have no clue even that there is something wrong with the numbers. We have truly been made innumerate. There was one government (or government sponsored) study that I came across related to the payday loan industry where it was suggested 1

What may appear to be a near trivial difference is actually a form of mathematically engineered leverage which increases the total cost of borrowing (cost of the contract) by 93% at a stated interest rate of 15% per annum. A mortgage or any term loan is designed with the monthly payment amount determined so as to be just slightly more than the initial (first month's) interest cost so that the loan will take 30 years (or whatever desired amortization period) to pay off.
